Buy this book and laugh your head off or give it as a gift to any person you would wish to see with a laughed-off head. It's funny, actually... Plus, I can really recommend the one time magnification binoculars advertised in there, no more looking in the wrong side seeing everything so annoyingly small... Tea kettle tea kettle...

Took the recommendations and ordered this for a gift. What a HOOT! I plan on buying a copy for everyone in the family. All of us watch birds for fun. Ben Sill makes birding much more entertaining!

HASH(0x9b480e34) out of 5 stars Great book. Jan. 7 2014
By Rebecca R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We are a (casual) bird watching family who apparently enjoy bird humor, evidenced by the joy with which this book is passed around. Lots of fun for lots of ages. Every time through this book reveals more and more goofiness. These are some VERY creative writers, and excellent illustrations as well. Perfect for anyone from a bird-watching friend, to a bored kid.

HASH(0x9b480d50) out of 5 stars Hilarious Book Dec 10 2012

These series are great for humor! They are so funny, I have no idea how this guy came up with the names for the birds. I gave them as gifts to my uncle who is a bird watcher
HASH(0x9b480da4) out of 5 stars Birding Magazines get a Wonderful Send-up Sept. 29 2015
By Karen P. Rhodes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have hung around with birdwatchers from time to time. In fact, some of my best friends are birders. I have two other hilarious books by the Sill family -- Field Guide to Little-Known and Seldom-Seen Birds, and Another Field Guide to Little-Known and Seldom-Seen Birds. I love those books. They are wonderfully funny. This book is a take-off on birding magazines, and the authors truly nail it with this one. The articles are a scream, and even the copyright page is hilarious. Advertisements satirizing the sorts of things we see advertised in birding magazines strike right to the funny bone. Anyone who has done any birding and has seen these birding magazines will get a big kick out of this book.

This book is so fun to show someone who thinks it's serious and it ends up being silly. Very clever. An unusual sense of humor. I'd like to get some for gifts!
